Getting started in robot-assisted surgery for invasive bladder cancer can be very challenging. Setting oneself up for success is as important as surgical technique. Factors such as patient selection, coordination of critical elements of the robotic team, applying surgical concepts of bladder cancer surgery, and identifying potential obstacles to a short learning curve will be covered within this chapter. The authors will review key elements of the aforementioned allowing surgeons to maximize chances of a successful transition to robotic bladder surgery.
